Kelly Kingham – Inside Out (Kelly Kingham)

Kelly Kingham

Kelly Kingham’s show focuses on his memories of family members, his relationship with his wife and his struggle with depression. There are many aspects of Kingham’s performance which win the audience over, and it’s a mark of his talent that these topics are amusing as well as touching. His vulnerability, nervous energy and skewed perspective are all endearing, and his observations about life are impressive in their honesty and wit. His anecdotes (including a story about his father’s lack of inhibitions on a family holiday to Brighton) are told with affection and good humour. Kingham has managed to make uncomfortable topics such as redundancy and marital issues accessible, relatable and entertaining. This is a thought-provoking and heart-warming show.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 29 Aug.
